FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, July 12, 2017 (Cincinnati, OH): Breaking News from our friends at Right to Life of Northeast Ohio and Operation Rescue:
“Closure of any abortion facility in Ohio means increased protection for women, men and their children targeted and deceived by the abortion industry,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “Abortion is not healthcare and we look forward to every such center of death in the state shuttering their doors.”
Two Abortion Facilities Mysteriously Close in Ohio
Akron, Ohio – Right to Life of Northeast Ohio has informed Operation Rescue that two Ohio abortion facilities that have a long history of egregious health violations and botched abortions have closed under mysterious circumstances. The closures appear to be voluntary.
The Akron Women’s Medical Group, located in Akron, Ohio, is listed on a Google search as “permanently closed.” This facility conducted surgical and medication abortions. It’s Ambulatory Surgical Facility License is listed as “active.” However, the license expired on April 30, 2013, and has been under renewal status ever since, allowing the facility to continue operations.
The Cleveland Women’s Medical Group, was a medication abortion facility that currently states on their website, “This facility has been closed until further notice.” Because it only offered medication abortions, it did not require an ASF license. This facility referred surgical abortion patients to the Akron location.
All phone lines for both clinics are answered by a busy signal, including their toll-free number.
